A constitution is an aggregate of
fundamental principles or established
precedents that constitute the legal
basis of a polity, organisation or other
type of entity, and commonly determine
how that entity is to be governed.

The function of a Constitution
is to provide for the governmental powers,
the legal system, and the rights of
citizens in the nation. The modern model
for the proper function of
constitutions is provided by the United
States Constitution. Laws that are ultra
vires, or
“beyond the powers,” may be found with
officials given certain powers
under the Constitution but denied others,
the latter of which they exercise.
Similarly, laws which are found to infringe
on the rights of the citizens they
address will be declared null and void ab
initio, or “from the beginning.”
